Sunday June 26th 2016
It was another beautiful summer day. It got to about 90 in southern New Hampshire. I don’t think it got as warm at the campground. It was in the low 80s when I got back this evening.
The traffic wasn’t nearly as bad today. Even with a stop for breakfast at McDonalds I made it to the house in less time than Friday. My return trip this afternoon was in the opposite direction from most of the traffic. There were a couple of times the other side of the interstate was stopped.
The highlight of today’s accomplishment at the house was another run to Goodwill. I got rid of another old computer and printer. Neither were in working order, but that doesn’t matter. Goodwill has a deal with a group that salvages the computer for parts and precious metals.
I also stopped at Home Depot for a water filter cartridge. My RV has a whole house water filter in the water input line. I replaced the filter that came with the unit about a month ago, but it isn’t the best cartridge for the application. It restricts the flow to much. The one I bought today is supposed to allow greater flow. I’ll put it in sometime this week and test it out.
The campground has emptied out of the weekend crowd. There are a few campers that held out until evening to avoid the traffic. A few others are leaving tomorrow. Some of the weekenders sites have already been taken by travelers. I saw a set of RVs from California, Oregon and Washington that came in today. They are camped in neighboring sites so I assume they are together.
One strange thing about this campground is that the office and store close at 6PM Sunday through Thursday. Anyone coming in after 6 has to follow the self reservation procedure. I can understand the early closure in the off season, but this is summer. Good thing they stay open on Friday and Saturday. It would be a mess if all the late arrivals had to fend for themselves; not to mention how much money they would loose on fire wood sales.
